Correction to this booklet

This booklet has an error. It says that a magistrate cannot exclude someone from your home unless you agree. However, a magistrate can order the person who used family violence (called 'the respondent') to stay away from your home. A magistrate can make this order if it is needed to keep you safe, even if it is not what you want. The magistrate's decision will depend on your cirumstances.
